First Communion Photos from Spain over the years

During travel to visit Vincent's family in Spain I have seen many first communion ceremonies in the local churches.  The girls always wear the traditional white dresses and veils, but it is interesting to see that the boys dress all in variations of sailor outfits.

Here are some old photos from the Garcia family photo albums of these interesting first communion outfits.
